Intercepted Broadcast 2190
The virus ran swiftly on the hot summer breeze. Unseen. Unheard. Unknown. It swept through the entire earth in a matter of months, having mercy on no one. Young—old—it didn’t matter.
Brought to us by the Drabs, it was the last thing we expected. But the Drabs knew. They even fought a war over whether or not they should save us.
In the end, it was decided that we were diseased insects who were unfit to breathe their air.
So they left the human race to die a miserable death of agonizing pain. Left us with no doctors or medicine. Their plan was to rid the earth of us and to take our home as their own.
What they never expected was the change that would come after the plague. We didn’t all die as they'd planned. Those under the age of twenty somehow managed to survive the disease.
We managed to pull through it, even alone, and we learned to hide ourselves while our bodies changed. Still human, but now something else. Something more powerful. More intuitive.
More pissed off.
We're still here, on this earth, and we're not leaving. This is our home.
Drabs take note and learn to be afraid. You've had a hundred years here on earth, but now your time here is done.
You called us rodents. Insects. Diseased animals. The scraps of humanity—and that, my Drab friend, we certainly are. But what you should have realized is that you can't kill a Scrap. Humanity isn't dead. Not by a longshot. We still have our soldiers and we have our conviction.
Most of all, we have hope.
And we will win in the end. Whatever it takes. Whatever it costs. We won't allow you to take our planet from us. So count your days, Drabs.
The war is on.
Yeah, this book is finally out! Apparently, it was bought in 2005 or something, and only now is coming out, so yeah, a long wait, but well worth it, after all, it's a Sherrilyn Kenyon book! And it's a new world, and I was so excited to read it!
Honestly, I'd call this book a 0.5, not a 1, because it's only 87 pages long. A lot is packed into those pages, but still, it's not a lot of story. I just wish that it was longer, because man, it was just so freaking good and enjoyable!
That the Drabs did that to our world, oh, man, righteous fury, right now! They had some pretty horrible attitudes-and they only got rid of slavery of their species only recently, I think humans did slightly better there, even if we still have some pretty poor attitudes!
I really enjoyed these characters, Joshua who lost his family in all this, and how he is pretty closed off-but still protective of his remaining family. And a maybe love interest in the other main character in this book...but yeah, there's a lot for future books to grow off of!
This book was just absolutely fantastic, and I can't wait for more!
